Well at least there was some blood and thunder tonight. As DOL has just said, you give away daft goals and you give yourself too much to do. With all our injuries, it is probably as well that we went out, don't mean that to be negative, but we never had an FA Cup prayer with the likes of Chelski still in it and we need to ensure our survival imho.

Poor attendance, I would of thought more than 33,006 people from the stats it seemed we were on a par, just like the Blackburn game we were unable to finish and with strikers like Baros and Phillips upfront you would expect them to be banging them in

Another poor performance in my opinion, lacking all the usual, i.e., passion, grit, effort, determination etc. etc. It was only at the death that we started throwing guys forward, but of course by then it was way too late. Over the two games, very much second best.
